Harrisonburg city public schools, located in virginia's Scenic Shenandoah Valley, serves 4400 students kindergarten through 12th grade with a faculty of approximately 750. Maintaining adequate wireless coverage was a continual battle. Placed on a shelf, a table, or the floor in a classroom, access points were easily moved, unplugged, or even stolen. Without central management, there was no way to know a problem existed until a user complained. Supported by an assortment of Netgear and Apple wireless access points, the school system provided laptop-equipped teaching staff with mobile access to the Internet and educational and student management applications.
